“Know Love”: Week 4 – Friday

Question of the day: Obviously, as believers, we are to imitate what is good, but how do we know the difference between good and evil? Check out Hebrews 5:14 for the answer. To encourage others and help us grow in our faith and understanding please be sure to read and/or share your comments about today’s question or passage in the reply bar at the bottom of the page. Let’s spur one another on to love and good deeds.

Today’s Scripture: 3 John 9-15 (S.O.A.P. 11)

I wrote something to the church but Diotrephes who loves to be first among them, does not acknowledge us. 10 Therefore, if I come, I will call attention to the deeds he is doing—the bringing of unjustified charges against us with evil words! And not being content with that, he not only refuses to welcome the brothers himself, but hinders the people who want to do so and throws them out of the church! 11 Dear friend, do not imitate what is bad but what is good. The one who does good is of God; the one who does what is bad has not seen God.

12 Demetrius has been testified to by all, even by the truth itself. We also testify to him, and you know that our testimony is true.

13 I have many things to write to you, but I do not wish to write to you with pen and ink. 14 But I hope to see you right away, and we will speak face to face. 15 Peace be with you. The friends here greet you. Greet the friends there by name.

In response to the question of the day:
We need to grow in the Lord, grow in our knowledge of Him, and put into practice what we learn. When a Christian does not mature in their faith, they can’t form sound spiritual judgments and are not capable of distinguishing between good and evil or seeing the difference between sound scriptural teaching and dangerous false doctrine. If we stay a babe in Christ we just get tossed around and Satan uses that to keep us away from growing and abiding in Christ.
